Western Australia 5 for 141 (Harris 3-31) v Queensland 164 (Pomersbach 57, Cockley 4-50) by 23 runs
Western Australia compensated for a first day wash-out by rushing through Queensland's batting then pushing to within sight of first-innings points on day two of the Sheffield Shield match at the WACA ground.
On another lively pitch that spent a day under the covers, the Bulls were soon in trouble after being sent in by the WA captain Adam Voges. Burt Burt Cockley maintained his notable rebirth as a Warrior, plucking four wickets, while Ryan Duffield, Michael Hogan and Mitchell Marsh supported ably.
Luke Pomersbach was the only Bulls batsman to pass 50, and the inadequacy of their total was demonstrated by WA's progress in the latter part of the day.
Ryan Harris did his best for the Bulls, claiming another three wickets as he maintained a strong case for an Ashes recall, but Michael Hussey and Sam Whiteman were in solid occupation at the close.
